Pupils from Elm Park Primary School created a special aerial display after convincing three “dragons” they should win funding for an Olympic project.

Students from the Hornchurch school made flags to represent every Olympic nation and joined them all together to form the centrepiece of a spectacular full school photo.

Elm Park Primary won the cash for the display after taking part in the “Havering Olympic Dragons’ Den” earlier this year.
